Grassroots Consensus Building And Collaborative Planning, Peter W. Salsich

All Faculty Scholarship

The neighborhood collaborative planning movement has an important role to play in efforts to remake American cities. This article begins by defining neighborhood collaborative planning which centers around the importance of resident participation in decisions affecting their community. The article explains how neighborhood collaborative planning is a useful way for residents to take part in governmental decision making, particularly in large cities where distance and complexity of the governmental process may make it difficult for ordinary citizens to participate. Next, it outlines the roles that lawyers and community organizer serve under the two strategies used to foster neighborhood collaborative planning, …


Equity And Efficacy In Washington State's Gma Affordable Housing Goal, Henry Mcgee Jan 2000

Equity And Efficacy In Washington State's Gma Affordable Housing Goal, Henry Mcgee

Faculty Articles

This essay considers the basis for the Washington State's Growth Management Act’s (GMA) affordable housing goal, considers the relationship between its achievement and the reduction of urban sprawl. It also links the GMA's goal of an equitable distribution of housing resources to a fundamental social aspiration described by the United States Congress as a "decent home and living environment for all Americans." Indeed, it will be argued that the economic disparity and inequity directly linked to urban sprawl-both a cause as well as an effect-are locked ineluctably to a pathological social process in which they feed upon each other.

The Dilemma Of Old, Urban Neighborhoods, W Dennis Keating Jan 2000

The Dilemma Of Old, Urban Neighborhoods, W Dennis Keating

Law Faculty Articles and Essays

In his recounting of the suburban migration from America's cities, journalist and broadcaster Ray Suarez laments the loss of the "old neighborhood". He extols its virtues while explaining its decline. Suarez's nostalgic examples recall the virtues of the extended family kinship, neighborliness, and other features of the "urban village." These are often associated with those urban neighborhoods populated by recent immigratns. These urban villages were thought to have peaked in the decades between the American Civil War and the onset of the First World War, when many U.S. cities industrialized and grew very rapidly. However, a continuing movement of migrants …


Now You See It, Now You Don't: Why Do Real Estate Agents Withhold Available Houses From Black Customers?, Jan Ondrich, John Yinger, Stephen Ross Jan 2000

Now You See It, Now You Don't: Why Do Real Estate Agents Withhold Available Houses From Black Customers?, Jan Ondrich, John Yinger, Stephen Ross

Center for Policy Research

This paper develops a new approach to testing hypotheses about the causes of discrimination in housing sales. We follow previous research by using data from fair housing audits, a matched-pair technique for comparing the treatment of equally qualified black and white home buyers. Our contribution is to shift the focus from differences in the treatment of teammates during an audit to agent decisions concerning an individual housing unit. Our sample consists of all units seen by either a black of a white auditor in the 1989 national Housing Discrimination Study. We estimate a multinomial logit model to explain a real …


The Urban Housing Issues Symposium: Interdisciplinary Study In A Clinical Law & Policy, Peter W. Salsich Jan 2000

The Urban Housing Issues Symposium: Interdisciplinary Study In A Clinical Law & Policy, Peter W. Salsich

All Faculty Scholarship

This article describes the Urban Housing Issues Symposium, an interdisciplinary program that began in 1992 as a cooperative experiment between the Saint Louis University School of Law and the Washington School of Architecture. The program, which soon expanded to include social work and public policy students, used hypothetical problems, and later real life problems, as a way of demonstrating the importance of interdisciplinary relationships that the professions have in the context of real estate development. By giving the students the chance to interact, the students learned a greater appreciation for the variety of disciplines that are involved in the development …
